Easy Southwest Salad

So I’m still trying to eat healthier and this is my go to salad recipe. I’ve been making it for years. You could also change it around to your liking.

It’s just a few simple ingredients tossed together, and it makes the perfect lunch or dinner when you’re in a rush.

It’s a great catch-all, too, so if you have a lot of veggies you need to eat before they go bad, chop them up and throw them in.

We love how colorful this salad is, and with the veggies, beans, and chicken – it’s full of good-for-you foods that will leave you filling satisfied and full (unlike some other salads!).

You can top it with any kind of salad dressing you like, but our current favorite is this Avocado Cilantro Greek Yogurt Dressing. It only has 50 calories per serving and tastes AMAZING.
